Be a Muscular Dystrophy Summer Camp Volunteer Counselor!

If you are 18 or older, you’re invited to apply and join the MDA team as a summer camp counselor. At camp, volunteer counselors work one-on-one with campers, providing around-the-clock care and the close supervision of a child with muscular dystrophy. Counselors are required to meet the daily needs of each child and become a youngster’s friend for a week. We especially are in need of male camp volunteers; however, female camp volunteers also are needed.

It’s a tall order to be an MDA camp counselor. Each counselor is paired with one camper 24 hours a day for the camp week. The counselors goal is to make camp a safe and fun experience for their camper. They  are looking for people who can fulfill many specific responsibilities and duties in addition to meeting their camper’s emotional and physical needs. Pre-camp training will be provided to all volunteer counselors.

 How to become a volunteer counselor

  • Complete a volunteer application through your local MDA office
  • Provide three references with phone numbers
  • Consent to a criminal background check
  • Interview with MDA staff

Contact Patty Cornelius @ 509-325-3747 or pcornelius@mdausa.org if you’re interested in volunteering at MDA summer camp the week of July 12-19, 2014.
